Coles sacked the last of its unvaccinated staff at the beginning of this year, long after state mandates fell and other industries began allowing the so-called mavericks of the workforce back into the office. The move, along with other supermarket giants, saw thousands of Australians unceremoniously dumped, many of them single mothers or from struggling households.
‘Shop safe at Coles’ is something that looks good printed in big letters across double-page ads to those still suffering from anxiety hangovers. Just don’t ask too many questions about the health logic, given unvaccinated people can shop in the store, but not stand behind the counter.
Speaking of corporate virtue signalling.
The same company turned around this week and announced it would be offering its trans and gender-diverse employees ten extra days of paid leave for the purpose of ‘gender affirmation’. ‘Affirmation’ is a hazy term that Coles describes as ‘any process’ that relates to the act of gender affirmation including surgical, social, legal, or medical action. Leave could be granted for anything from an appointment with a lawyer through to full surgery.
Gender Affirmation Leave was timed to coincide with the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, and Transphobia – one of the dozens of days and months dedicated to a sexual preference or pronouns.
Coles Chief Legal and Safety Officer, David Brewster, (who also serves as the Chairman of the Pride Steering Committee), released a statement.
‘We know that we have at least 900 team members who identify as transgender or gender diverse. We need to have proper policy and education in this area so there is clear guidance around taking leave for this important transition in their life.’
Coles attached a long and bizarre ‘gender affirming’ statement that seems a little over the top for employment that largely involves stacking shelves and pushing trolleys. Its headings include ‘encouraging you to be your authentic self’ and ‘developing our Pride Team member network’ – which doesn’t sound like something employers should concern themselves with.
This move, described as ‘way ahead of politicians’ (add to that logic, reason, and fairness) is meant to be an action against ‘trans hate’. 2022 has transitioned into a world where an employer who is not constantly, publicly, and (preferably financially) ‘affirming’ an employee they must, by default, hate them. For most of human history, workers preferred their employers to keep their noses out of any private medical business.
‘You’ll be supported as the gender with which you identify, wear the clothes or uniform of your affirmed gender, use the toilets and change rooms of your affirmed gender and be referred to by the name of your affirmed gender too,’ read a statement, issued by Coles.
The statement leans heavily toward sentiments of anti-discrimination and equity – which is fine, one is simply left to wonder where this emotionally sensitive Coles hurt-feelings committee was when it was ruthlessly sacking unvaccinated staff who simply wanted to keep their jobs and their body autonomy at the same time. Coles went one step further, attempting to impose its vaccination policies on unrelated suppliers, contractors, partners, and anyone working onsite.
And no. If you’re an employee with a non-gender related medical or emotional issue, you’ll have to plan ahead and sacrifice some of your holiday leave when you run out of the standard state-sanctioned medical allotment. No one is going to give you a Woke Virtue point for a hip replacement.

Yet again, further evidence of meticulous planning and what *they* have had in store for us for some time.
$119 million spent on another ‘vaccine’, expressly Jynneos, which incidentally, Monkeypox was mysteriously added to the smallpox ‘vaccine’ – and approved in 2019 by another Big Pharma giant Bavarian-Nordic.
Bavarian-Nordic have been involved all along with the Convid ‘vaccine’. Flying under the radar.
They are also a member of the Alliance for Biosecurity.
Another ’vaccine’ which they have approved for manufacture transfer was in place for 2020 – 2025.
Yes, through to 2025.
This ‘vaccine’ is for none other than TBE (Tick-borne Encephalitis). BOOM!
As with Lumpy-Skin-disease-Littleproud’s Japanese Encephalitis, this is a disturbingly recurring word.

(Natural News) Today’s Situation Update podcast is one of the most important of this year. It explains how the domestic food supply is being militarized and controlled by a corrupt, criminal regime in Washington D.C. that now threatens food security for all Americans.
To address the infant formula shortage that’s causing widespread frustration and even panic across America, the illegitimate Biden regime has invoked Korean War-era emergency powers found in the Defense Production Act, which is administered by FEMA. That act, originally intended to allow emergency executive action to shore up critical infrastructure during times of war, is now being used by the Biden regime to seize control over food supply raw materials and force companies to deliver them to Abbott Laboratories to manufacture large quantities of heavily processed, junk food “infant formula” made with corn syrup solids and processed milk proteins.
Because this effort simply redirects existing food materials, this does not actually solve any food shortages in America, it merely shifts the shortages from one product category to another.
It also stands as a centrally-planned food distribution plan that resembles communism, not free market dynamics.
Furthermore, it means that as other food shortages emerge in the months ahead, the Biden regime will almost certainly invoke the DPA to seize control of other food materials, making sure favored corporations get supply while dissident companies and small businesses are driven into bankruptcy due to lack of supply.
Welcome to Joe Biden’s America, where nothing is safe from the catastrophically bad ideas of the Biden regime and its desire to destroy everything in sight, including food abundance and affordable fuel.
DHS has already secretly seized the output of food storage manufacturers across America
As my company (HealthRangerStore.com) is in the food production and storable foods industry, we are acutely aware of what’s happening across that industry. We have confirmed that the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) has already seized the entire production output of several large US storable food manufacturers. Those companies were also forced to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to keep this fact a secret from the public. But careful observers will note that any food production company claiming to be unable to fulfill customer orders for many months at a time is actually under the control of DHS, forced to shift all output to the US government.
DHS is currently funneling tens of millions of dollars a month of storable food products into underground government bunkers and tunnels while telling the public there’s no need to prepare at all. Food recalls are also being staged by the FDA in order to confiscate massive quantities of foods which are redirected to government bunkers.
DHS, I’m told, is preparing for a war with China which is believed will commence before the mid-term elections this year. I will have huge details on this in tomorrow’s podcast, which exposes China’s plan to invade the continental United States with millions of PLA troops in order to seize America’s farmland, oil and mineral resources. The plan involves exterminating every last American, including all the Democrats who have committed treason by working with the communist Chinese to achieve this plan. (Such as Calif. Gov. Newsom.)
China’s invasion plan, by the way, will begin with a D-Day-style landing on the beaches of California. Every Californian civilian who is unable to flee will be executed on sight. And since California is a gun control state, the American people have been deliberately disarmed in order to make China’s invasion far easier to accomplish. (More about that tomorrow…)
Dept. of Defense aircraft are now AIRLIFTING baby food into America, using military resources to solve domestic food supply problems that should be solved by the free market instead
The insanity of the Biden regime knows no bounds. Instead of allowing the free market to solve the infant formula problem by ending the FDA’s protection racket for Abbott Laboratories and other domestic manufacturers, Biden has resorted to using Dept. of Defense aircraft to airlift infant formula into the United States.
Biden has also directed the Health and Human Services Department and Department of Agriculture to use aircraft from the Defense Department to pick up infant formula from overseas that meets U.S. health and safety standards.
So while DoD resources would be far better utilized to prepare for the coming World War III (with either China or Russia), Biden has DoD transport planes airlifting baby food in order to try to stem the tide of frustration among US voters.
This reflects the militarization of the domestic food supply, meaning that not only is Biden invoking emergency war powers to seize and control domestic food supply materials; he’s also using the military to choose where to distribute the available food resources.
There couldn’t possibly be anything wrong with militarizing the US food supply under war-time emergency powers, could there?

Letter to the Editor
The week of 8.4.2022 I came across an articles regarding a researcher and Government officials in Australia wanting to bring highly contagious lumpy skin disease samples into Australia so it can be studied.
It seems we do not have the disease in Australia. After a bit of a search it also seems there is an alarming rate of spreading of this disease around the world at the moment, so why would you risk the importation of this bug into our country, given what has happened over the last couple of years. 11.4.2022 and David Littleproud has given permission.
In my opinion this researcher should pack their suit case jump on a plane and go and research the disease where it exists. We have in the past have had a top biosecurity act in place here in Australia,
Unfortunately it no longer has my confidence as it has been thrown out the window. If private business is involved its just about the money, I am sure I am not the only concerned Australian in regard to these types of infectious diseases. Let’s hope the bureaucrats were qualified to make the right decision or perhaps it has been imported already. If this disease suddenly appears we know where to start looking for answers. I am not happy how Australia has and is being run for years, An absolute Disgrace if you ask me.
Editor: Minister Littleproud’s knowledge of agriculture would fit onto a postage stamp. His father was a country school teacher and David would have seen cows in a paddock somewhere which qualified him to be Minister. But have no doubt the ALP would do the same. Have these mindless bureaucrats and LNP dupes learnt nothing from the Covid scam?
The hysterical claim that Australia is set to lose its sovereignty to a World Health Organisation “treaty” the day after the federal election is false.
The United Australia Party started running advertisements on 17 May—just four days out from the election—claiming that the day after the election, the Labor and Liberal parties planned to give China control of “the health of Australians”.
UAP’s 17 May press release asserted:
“Handing control of our nation’s health programs to the pro-China World Health Organisation (WHO) should raise alarm bells for all Australian citizens, says UAP Chair Clive Palmer.”
Palmer went on to claim: “It is a shocking development to learn that the WHO will gain jurisdiction over controlling Australia’s health programs a day after the Federal Election. It is well known that China is a major contributor to and has a high degree of influence over the World Health Organisation. The WHO has been rightly criticised for pro-China bias in the past. It should be concerning to all Australians who value freedom and democracy that our health policies could fall under the influence of communist China.”
And, in a shameless dog-whistle to Sinophobes, in an 18 May email to members, the UAP highlighted that Australia’s representative to the WHO meeting is a professor with a Chinese name. Following this email, memes are circulating on the internet claiming the Australian professor is a “Chinese communist”.
None of Palmer’s claims are true; in fact, he is completely twisting the truth to blame China for something that is in fact an attack on China.
Here is what is actually happening starting the day after Australia’s federal election:
From 22-28 May, the 75th World Health Assembly (WHA) will convene in Geneva, Switzerland. The WHA is essentially all of the member nations of the United Nations, meeting to discuss internationally relevant health issues. The WHA sets the rules, agreed to by all member nations, which govern the World Health Organisation (WHO), the UN agency that coordinates global health information, cooperation, and emergency actions.
Aside from the usual issues the WHA discusses, this upcoming WHA will also discuss two extra agenda items:
- Amendments to the WHO’s “International Health Regulations” (IHRs) proposed by the US Biden Administration, which it claims are to “strengthen the ability of the WHO and member states to prevent, detect, and respond to future public health emergencies of international concern”;
- A proposal “for an international agreement on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response”, i.e. a global pandemic “treaty”.
In the blizzard of claims blowing around the internet, the two topics above are being confused with each other.
To deal with the treaty first: it is only a proposal. Nothing will be finalised at the WHA that starts the day after the Australian election. The most that will happen is the WHA will continue its preliminary discussions on a treaty, which is at minimum a two-year process. It will be at least 2024 before the finalised wording of a treaty, or convention, or agreement is available for the member nations to vote on at the WHA. And as London’s Telegraph reported on 12 April 2022: “But there are fears that the outcome—which is not due to be presented to the WHA until 2024—could emerge from years of fraught negotiations without any teeth amid significant geopolitical tensions [meaning with China and Russia–Ed.], especially as COVID-19 slips down the priority list.” (Emphasis added.)
So, no treaty will be decided next week in Geneva.
What will be voted on next week is the Biden Administration’s amendments to the IHRs. Clive Palmer has it twisted around, because these amendments are not a plot by China to take over our health, they are an attack on China!
The US amendments are based on the narrative started by the Trump administration in 2020, echoed by Clive Palmer, that China “mishandled” and “hid” the outbreak of COVID, allowing the spread that led to the global pandemic; and that the WHO was complicit, because China “controls” it. This isn’t actually true, but with the sharp deterioration in relations with China in the last two years, this narrative has stuck politically in the USA and countries like Australia. Ironically, anyone who supported the attacks on China over its handling of COVID, such as Scott Morrison’s 2020 call to send in inspectors to investigate, should support these US amendments because they are targeted at China!
The amendments seek to make the WHO less diplomatically sensitive in the way it relates to countries affected by a disease outbreak. Currently, the WHO is very sensitive to member nations’ sovereignty, and it treads carefully to avoid insulting a nation—such as by accusing a nation of causing a global pandemic—not least so it can ensure its experts have access to assess an outbreak. Because the China-haters in the Trump administration were accusing China of deliberately spreading COVID, they cynically twisted the WHO’s diplomatic sensitivity towards China into propaganda that “China controls the WHO”. Unfortunately, Biden has continued much of the Trump administration’s narrative, so the US amendments specifically propose to empower the WHO to unilaterally declare an “actual or potential” public health emergency, without the agreement of the country in which the outbreak has occurred.
Essentially, the US amendments are intended to give the WHO the power to embarrass nations. This does somewhat impinge on nations’ sovereignty compared to how the WHO operates now, but that’s it, however. Once the WHO declares a public health emergency, it can advise, but it cannot dictate how nations respond. It cannot order lockdowns, or forced vaccinations, as some people are claiming (in fact, the WHO is far more cautious about vaccine mandates than what we have seen from Australia’s state governments). And all member nations are able to reject the amendments and opt out of the International Health Regulations.
China is expected to oppose these amendments next week, likely seeing them as a threat to its sovereignty, according to Health Policy Watch on 6 May. This is an irony for the UAP—they are actually on China’s side! – Citizens Party (CEC)
We suggest readers watch Scomo’s video and make up their own minds:
Nearly 1500 fed up Cairns residents turned up today for a rally along the Esplanade finishing in the CBD with election candidates speaking from a podium.
There are 11 candidates contesting the seat of Leichardt held by Liberal Warren Entsch, the architect of gay marriage laws.
Entsch naturally did not attend or did the Labor candidate Elida Faith. No doubt they could have held fears for their safety had they shown up.
The protest was well organised and there were no arrests for unruly behaviour. Police stopped traffic while protesters converged onto the mall area for short speeches from candidates.
All called for the demise of LNP, ALP and Greens describing them as traitors to the people for selling the country out and their police-state Covid responses.
Bob Katter said he would be investigating the prospects of prosecuting Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk for killing off small business and enforcing vaccine mandates.
Every candidate spoke extremely well and it should be comforting that Cairns residents have so many capable independents to choose from on the ballot paper.
It was indeed refreshing to hear from KAP, UAP, One Nation, Informed Medical Options Party, Australian Federation Party and Fusion Party.

If you read agenda 2030 you will see they intend to concentrate us in boxes in their “smart cities” with their Universal Wage. This is why there is a war on the bush – floods – fire – legislation conspiring to push people off the land. Eventually we won’t be allowed access to the bush. It’s all been planned for a long time..

The Featherless Rooster
We watched the debate, Alabanese looked like a featherless rooster that wants to fly but doesn’t have the ability or know how. Crowing a lot does not grow feathers or ability.
His promise to increase wages in line with inflation good intent will only increase inflation upwards every time the increase is made, resulting in all products, food and clothing increasing also (as under Keating), where the increase became a negative liability on families because every product became too expensive to buy — and families suffered. Featherless rooster should not try to lay golden eggs.
Sorry mate, you lost our vote to common sense — we remember Keating’s 17% interest and ‘the recession we had to have’ — and friends who lost their homes and businesses.

UN/WEF/NWO coming in through back door
Local Government representation must be kicked out by our VOTES this election. Local Government is hiding in the parties and touting itself as a third level of government, unlawfully outside the jurisdiction of the highest law in our land, that magnificent guardian of our personal freedoms, the Australian Commonwealth Constitution. Let’s vote Local Government, their activists, their ignorant [or] traitorous MP enablers, who have made promises to Local Government to work in a national capacity, out of power.
We must vote out the parties in this election who have forsaken the Australian Commonwealth Constitution and who are actively working with the Local Government Groups to bring in what is another form of governance, if we want to live free.
Go to the websites of the parties and read their Media Releases. Are any espousing Federalism? Is it according to the Australian Commonwealth Constitution enacted in 1901 at Federation? Is their Federalism a “grass roots” democracy preaching Local Government and Regionalism = Nationalism? Or does their democracy rely on the powers of a parliament conforming in its structure to the Australian Commonwealth Constitution of 1901? Are any parties wanting to cut out State Government? What will this then be replaced with?
Don’t be sold out to the Liberals, Labor, Nationals, Greens, or any other party that is preaching a new way of government. Only the Australian Commonwealth Constitution has the freedom safeguards in it to stand against the advancing army of the UN/WEF/NWO.
We have all had a taste of the globalist powers. Did their rules and regulations allow you to get on with your life and give prosperity to you, your children, and your country?
No. Millions have suffered and died from the imposed EUA mandates and regulations.
Whilst Australians have been getting on with their busy lives, our MPs have been outsourcing power of governance to non- elected “experts”, and to anyone who wants to get into the political system via Local Government and Regionalism streams.
At this point in time, our guardian Australian Commonwealth Constitution has been trashed, and we are on a soviet-council pathway to internationalist control.
Let’s look at the evidence. Look up these links. We are “nothing” to the new power structure that is forming here in Australia. God is with-holding still its total power, but we can see it forming. We are to resist this beast. We are to set ourselves AGAINST this beast system. We are to be vigilant and to know our enemy and his policies.
The Liberal/National Government of Scott Morrison has created their new NATIONAL FEDERATION REFORM COUNCIL. This is their National Council, a nice sounding term for the under-belly inter-national soviet congress that it really is – just being oiled ready to slip into their World Federation of States when their time comes. Think of their WHO Constitution and their WHO Treaty which is being laid for all nations. Oh, dear, is this why former Liberal Foreign Affairs Minister, Julie Bishop, let Daniel Andrews call out Victoria as a Strong City – remember city is the new word for the old-fashioned shire council? Yes, all this has been planned. This is the Federation “reform” spoken of by Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull and was promised to continue through the old COAG.
Our Australian Commonwealth Constitution is the highest law of the land. It overrides any States laws. Local Government is controlled by State Governments. They have the power to establish and abolish all Local Government bodies. There are several hundred Local Government organisations in Australia. All Local Governments are established by acts of the State Parliaments. Right now, Local Government advocacy groups and Regional Australia advocacy groups are doing an end-run around the Australian Commonwealth Constitution. There is no Local Government nor Regional Government jurisdiction in the Australian Commonwealth Constitution. Not granted by the people of Australia. Period.
Let’s look at the evidence. Look up these links. These groups are destroying the people’s Australian Commonwealth Constitution with the help of your elected representatives, the politicians.
The Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) was formed under former Labor PM Kevin Rudd. The ACELG is a Consortium of five – the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG), the Centre for Local Government at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), University of Canberra, Local Government Managers Australia (LGMA) and the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia.
